Street Medicine Service Outreach, a 2019 Healthy Community Award winner

Due to the importance of health and safety for CNDA applicants and volunteers during the COVID-19 pandemic, the in-person site visits that are traditionally part of the CNDA site visit process will be virtual meetings with applicants and volunteer judges to take place on Jan. 18 and Jan. 19. Given that change, each CNDA applicant this year has the option to submit a short video (2-4 minutes) or photographs or other visual images (8-10) along with an application. Videos and visual images should showcase the project or program and enhance the CNDA application. For example, video or visual images could provide a tour of a building/project, feature a series of brief interviews, or any creative way that features your work in action in the community. Video/visual images do not need to be professionally shot or edited. Please review the criteria for the CNDA category you are applying under to determine the content to feature in the video or images submitted.



Up to 10 supporting materials or a video link can be included but are not required.
Only image files (.png, .jpg, etc.) and PDFs are accepted. Files must be a maximum of 5MB in size.
Link to a video hosted on a video-sharing service like Dropbox or YouTube.
